AMD HD 6990 up and running at Cebit

CeBIT 2011: Coming on March 8th
While Nvidia's dual-GPU card is nowhere to be seen on Cebit, AMD's dual-GPU HD 6990 is happily running at MSI's booth and is showcased behind close doors by other partners around the show.

The partners' mouths are sealed when it comes to the details regarding the card but we did manage to get some details. As far as we know so far, it will be based on two Cayman GPUs with 1536 VLIW4 stream processors.

The details regarding the clocks might change but for now the card works at 830MHz for the GPU and 1250MHz (5.0Gbps) for a total of 4GB of memory (2GB for each GPU) paired up with a 2x256-bit memory interface.

The card has one DVI and four mini DisplayPort outputs, needs two 8-pin PCI-Express power connectors and should arrive on March 8th, as AMD actually rushed the official launch date a bit. Enjoy the pictures.

Is it just me or does it look like that motherboard just got raped?

A REAL product, based on REALLY good, fast, efficient GPU's. Huang must be prepping his resignation letter now.

Well we will see how much it will really cost once it hits the market. I hope their drivers improve and that switch (pic-e) better be better than the last cards because it waters down performance.

That graphics acquisition by AMD was one of the smartest thinks AMD ever did.

2 8 pin power connectors?...Nice!, awesome to have the juice to overclock it and make it less efficient. The dual BIOS switch is a nice touch as well.

:-? I hope they change the thermal design before launch. I just don't like the idea of a card blowing hot air back into the case. And I agree with Arclight, I've had motherboards that were smaller than that card. :o
